Direct Contract for Works on Hydro Station

After the failure of two tenders for the repair of cracks in El Cajon, the contract for approximately $30 million will be awarded directly.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica (ENEE) has $30 million available to carry out the work."We have to look at the parameters and see if the law allows us to negotiate a contract directly. When you do not have any bidders, you take the ones that are there and follow the path with them directly," said Emil Hawitt, manager of the company.

"El Cajon has quite a few cracks, it is not as big a problem in terms of leaks, but for the safety of the dam, technically it has to be done", he added.

Rodio Swissboring, Soletanche Freyssinet and ICA participated in the first auction, while taking part in the second were Consortium M.O.S., Astaldi S.P.A., Sinohydro Corporation Limited and Tecnosuelo S.A. de C.V.
